Travelling Dietitians Top Food Picks From Around the Globe September 10, 2012 Europe, healthy products, nutrition, product innovation, Stop 1: USA, TDapproved, weight management 8 Comments I have been asked on numerous occassions what my favourite product finds have been from around the globe this year. I thought I would write this post so that my answer could be read by anyone interested. The products I am about to list are not an all inclusive list of every amazing product I have found, but they are certainly the ones that come to mind when I think of manufactured products that would be useful for weight management or lifestyle disease management for people around the world. Food industry gurus..I think many people from a range of countries would be very grateful if some of these products were imported and shared amongst the different nations! Skyr- High protein cultured dairy “yoghurt like” product from Iceland- 19g protein for around 100 calories Siggis Icelandic high protein yoghurt (without any artificial sweeteners) – Found in NYC Plant sterol enriched yoghurt with active culture “shots” – 2 ‘serves’ plant sterols per container = daily requirements for cholesterol lowering effects in one shot – Found in London Muscle milk oats- breakfast on the go- 30g protein and 4g of fibre for 300 calories- this will get you through the morning!

From a weight management or lifestyle disease management perspective they do certainly appear to be able to serve a purpose and could be enjoyed and useful for people all over the world!
